I just moved into a newly built condo, and there wasn't a light fixture installed before.
There are two wires, black and white, marette'd(?) together, and there is a lone black wire, which had not been stripped.
Ground wire is just bare copper and it's not touching anything.
The LED light fixture I'm trying to install is pretty standard, it has one black and one white wire, and a bare copper ground wire.
I'm not sure which wire goes where!
Here's what I've tried:
- WHITE 1 with WHITE (light fixture, lf) and BLACK 1 with BLACK (lf)
- WHITE 1, BLACK 1, with WHITE (lf) altogether and BLACK 2 with BLACK (lf)
In both of these cases, when I turned the circuit breaker back on, the LED lights were very dimly lit, and they did not respond to the light switch at all. They stayed on, very very dim. Did the diodes break?! :'(
